You are looking for springs. They will lower your car and reduce roll.
YOUR RIDE QUALITY WILL SUFFER!!!
All the quality makers of springs offer spring kits to lower your car about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2". This is a lot and the springs will be very stiff.
H&R springs looks like they may offer a kit to lower the car about 1" in the front and 1/2" in the rear. This would be better but not avalable as of yet.
As good as it looks lowered be for warned, your car will be a pain in parking lots, crossing speed bumps and dealing with "off road" trips. The Z3 is low enough now that I have problems getting a floor jack under mine!
Remember your air dam clears the curb by about 1/2" now...
